My latest blog post for Blacksnow Studios looks at how photographers can keep businesses going over the winter. It’s oh so tempting to hibernate but I spoke to a friendly bunch of photographers and business coaches to explore more useful options. There are a few nuggets in there for other creative freelancers too.
I do a lot of writing and proofreading for the lovely people at Blacksnow Studios a company that has built business management software for photographers. It’s quite handy being the writer and the target audience at the same time!
Having donned my other creative hat to take their headshots a few months ago, I was chosen as the first photographer to go under the spotlight in their new blog feature. Read on to find out more about me and my photography…
I was the only photographer invited to photograph Judy Murray meeting her namesake penguins at St Andrews Aquarium on Thursday 1st August. The four Humboldt penguins were named Andy, Judy, Kim and Shirley after the Wimbledon champion’s clan. The pics have rapidly made the international press. Hurrah

I’ve spent hours in the Enchanted Forest in Pitlochry over the last few nights, taking photographs to turn into calendars, greetings cards, postcards and prints. I’d love to tell you more but I’m up to my eyes in multi-coloured trees, moon-like objects, leaves and stairs that glow in the dark. *Update!* You can now buy official Enchanted Forest merchandise right here.
I’ve put loads of my Enchanted Forest pictures on my Facebook page. And there are more to come. I hope you like them.
Here’s what happened at the launch of my exhibition! Brilliant video by Woods Noble Media (if you excuse the fact I’m in it). The exhibition run has been extended so my pictures will now be decorating the walls of Curlers Rest until the 14th August.
You can see what happened behind the scenes during the set up of my exhibition launch in this video.
A one year old harbour seal called Togo made an incredible journey on Thursday; he travelled from the Fisheries and Maritime Museum in Esbjerg, Denmark to Aberdeen airport and on to his new home at St Andrews Aquarium. I was there to capture his arrival in Scotland and his onward journey. You’ll see much more of Togo and the Aquarium’s resident seal, Laurel, very soon.
I have good and bad news from St Andrews Aquarium. Sadly, we said goodbye to their original baby meerkat (Piper) this week. He was suffering from a malformation of joints that was causing him some pain and the Aquarium team had to make a very hard decision. Piper was an amazing wee creature and he’ll be sadly missed. He was the star of many of my most popular photos and I enjoyed spending some more time with him a couple of weeks ago; he was great fun and was thriving in his role as big brother to a bunch of new babies.
So that brings me onto the good news.
Kate and Wills gave birth to five new wee ones a few weeks ago and here are a few meerkat family photos I took during my last visit. Unsurprisingly, you’ll see many more pictures soon.
